Re: Ooooh, goody...
Few people in the world want a stripped down OS that doesn't update drivers, software and security
Actually, most people in the world hate updates. They slow the system down (on Windows, seldom noticeable on Linux), most people get along well with their existing drivers, same for their existing software (especially when said update means learning how to do things again, or features they use being removed), and most only "care" about security because of those who do their darndest to make them see sense.
Besides, the only "security" updates from MS in recent years have been the ones that break the networking or brick the machine so it can't get online. All the rest is just their usual bug-ridden filth.
